Biography

With a name like Marv Wolfman, this New York native had no choice but to become a youngster obsessed with horror, comic books and all things creepy. That he grew up to become a beloved comic book scriptwriter is proof that sometimes one's name is one's destiny. In fact, an in-joke about Wolfman's name eventually led to all comic book artists and writers getting story credits. When a horror comic's introduction cheekily described one of Marv's stories as a "Wolfman's tale," the Comics Code Authority (which had banned mentions of werewolves during the comic book crackdown of the 1950s) insisted that Marv Wolfman be directly credited as the story's author, which then led to all writers and artists getting credited in comic books.
